The universal response to Jan’s day long presentation was so enthusiastic!
"The universal response to Jan's day long presentation of "The Word, The Image, The Story: Tools of Transformation was so enthusiastic! Jan is an inspirational speaker and leader who has the ability to engage and encourage others' creative processes. Through poetry, compelling images, stories, and invitations to explore one's own inner wealth of experience, she was able to draw out even those who were convinced they were not "creative"! The time she spent with us was too short!"

Jan has a amazing ability to touch the individual heart
"Jan has a amazing ability to touch the individual heart while at the same time being able to inspire the minds of the collective group to create, motivate and organize. She midwifes Spirit-led passion and then guides the co-creative process between diverse parts (minds or communities) to manifest a new creation that expresses something greater than the sum of its parts. It is something innovative and exciting; something that is a blessing to the world and all who are part of the creation. Simply, it is thrilling."
Rev. Melanie Burns, Spiritual Director Esprit Center for Inspired Living, Religious Science Naples Florida March 13, 2016
